Happy Valentine’s Day to all my readers!
Hey. I love you guys all so much. Thank you for supporting my blog. I’m rewarding you today because it’s a) Valentine’s Day (duh); and b) because it’s coincidentally Friday, which means that this is kind of like the solar eclipse of holidays.
Chocolate Brownies (yields 12)
1/4 c. cocoa powder
1/3 c. butter
1 c. sugar
3/4 c. flour
pinch of salt
In a small saucepan add together cocoa and butter. Begin to melt butter at a low temperature, stirring every so often to combine the melting butter with the cocoa powder. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl add eggs, sugar, flour and salt. Don’t mix yet! When the butter and cocoa is melted, pour over ingredients into mixing bowl. Stir just enough to combine everything without any lumps, then pour batter into a 9×9-inch into the middle comes out clean. Let cool in pan before cutting into squares.
B’s Tip: I know it’s tempting, but wait until the brownies are completely cool before cutting them! If they’re too hot, the batter will have not set and you’ll end up with a gooey mess that will be delicious, but it won’t be a brownie.
This brownie has a cake-like texture and a chocolatey flavour that isn’t too overhwelming, so it’s perfect for add-ins. You may want to try adding some nuts to the batter, or just smearing with your favourite frosting. Delicious!
